Can ringworm never be cured?

Ringworm. Aka Khujli. Haven’t we all heard of it? The ghastly skin problem that just doesn’t stop itching.

People who have suffered from this, would give away anything to avoid facing the same again. Well, who wudnt? When it can make you scratch anytime anywhere anyhow.

The most popular ads we have seen about it are the ones for b-tex, itch guard, etc. But there are others like

The problem with these medicines is limited time of action. Meaning, you are okay until you are taking these medicines. But once you stop, it comes back again.

People get so depressed that they have to be put on very strong drugs to keep the infection away. But there’s no other way, we think.

Actually there is.

Let me show with a real life example.

This is the account of a young man who had been suffering from ringworm from 2 plus years. He had been under regular allopathic treatment all these years on and off. But every time he stopped taking the medicine he would get the problem again.

Last time, he decided to try homeopathy or a friends suggestion. And voila!

In 4 months, his problem was much better, just like when he would take his allopathic medicines. But only this time, he had not taken any of them.

Not only that, he is being continually monitored monthly since the last 6 months and he is doing perfectly fine and no recurrence.

How?

Little sweet pills of Homeopathy. Can yu believe that? May be not. But what can I say. That’s the fact.

This above case was treated by Dr. Vivant Rana after finding out the root cause of this patients problem. How it started, when it increases, when it decreases and any particular reason of how it started. Based on all this information, the patient was treated with homeopathic medicines for 4 months. And this was the result.

What do yu think of that?! Awesome right?

Definitely it is awesome.

What are fungal infections?

Fungal infections are infamous for their ability to recur again and again, especially in people with a weak immune system.

Why weak immunity?

Because you see these infections can actually be tackled by our own bodys immune system, if it was healthy. But when it’s not, the opposite party, that is the organisms and the infection become more powerful and have a strong hold until we remove it with more stronger antifungal.

But as I mentioned earlier in the post too, the infection is controlled until the effects of the medicine lasts. Once the course is over, the infection starts again in sometime.

The only way out of this and that too permanently is, to make sure the fungus can’t survive in the body at all. And that can only be possible if the body’s healthy and has a strong immune response.

This is what is actually focused in homeopathic treatment. Not only to relieve the complaints but even prevent it from recurring.

In fact, there are many such awesome solutions available around us, it’s just that we don’t know much about them. But don’t, worry, this is a start. I will make sure to get you more such awesome information continuously.

Let me know if you found this useful. Share it with anyone who will find it helpful.

Until then, take care!

True Stories: From living with piles to getting rid of it completely. Find out how this woman did it.

How to cure piles?

You have heard of piles right?

May be, you have experienced it yourself or seen a close friend or relative suffering from it. Can you almost feel the pain right now, just thinking of it? Yes, that unspeakable pain your ass.

Piles, also called as hemorrhoids, is a problem affecting the rectum and anus, causing mild to severe pain while trying to pass stools. Many people experience this pain differently. Some have this before stools, some during, while some after it.

Most often they conclude it is because of the spicy and rich food they had that day or the previous day, mostly non-veg food. And then decide, ‘Okay, may be I’ll just fast today, have some buttermilk, and it should be fine by the end of the day’.

That’s good, because most often it helps.

But it doesn’t, they visit the nearest doctor and take the first line of treatment – which is mostly pain medicines, and a tube of anesthetic ointment to apply on the anus, so that you don’t feel the pain. And its relieved. Phew! Even if it is at least for the time being.

Unfortunately, the problem crops us again, and again, and again. So much so, that we decide to stop having these types of food. Slowly, you have reached a stage where you get the complaints even on the days you have had normal non-spicy diet. And now you are really worried?

Why?

Haven’t i stopped all the things that were causing the problem. Why then, is the problem still remaining?

This post is the answer to that question.

This is the story of a young lady who had been suffering from health problems on after the other, never knowing why she was getting ill frequently, at such a young age.

It always starts small.

Maya* was a 20 something young woman who had been a regular patient with Dr. Smita Adkine. In fact, her whole family was. So, she would visit often, often lone, sometimes with other family members, for minor complaints.

But one day, she came rushing to the doctors clinic, worried the doctor might leave, as it was closing time.

Luckily, the doctor was just packing up, when she entered. And looking at Maya, clearly in some serious problem, the doctor called her in for the consult.

Maya had been having minor health problems on and off, but lately she had been complaining of piles and pain while passing stools. But today, she said, it was very extreme. The pain is so severe, that she couldn’t even sit comfortably. To top it, it was bleeding badly as well.

How to cure piles

There was something deeper.

The doctor sensed that something deeper was wrong with Maya. Her physical health seemed to be worsening slowly. And that there had to be something more to the problem.

So, the doctor first called her down and asked her what else was going on? If she has been dealing with any stress recently.

Maya denied, saying it was the usual, nothing she hasn’t seen before.

The doctor could sense that Maya dint want to talk about it openly, but there was definitely something affecting her internally.

Knowing Maya closely from so many years, the doctor knew Maya wasn’t a person to share her problems easily, unless a must. So she explained that her stress could be the reason that causing her problems to increase and recur again and again. And that talking about it and getting help is needed.

How to cure piles

Maya opened up finally.

Maya had been worried about some financial crisis in her family. But it was not per se about money. It was something more.

She comes from a very respected family and her father is a well renowned and respectable man in their locality.

After much struggle, the family had built a house in the same locality, which had now become a canter spot for important social meetings, with her family playing a reachable role.

However, since they had to spend a lot of money to built the house, the family was in a lot of debt. And there came a situation, where they had to either pay a huge sum of money, which they dint have at the time; or sell the house and move to a different location and get free of the debt.

But this would mean a lot of embarrassment and shame for the family, or at least that’s what Maya thought. And this thought had been eating her away since the day this news came.

Every time she was stressed, her body reacted too.

And on recollecting, Maya confirmed, it was around the same time, her health was deteriorating.

Every time, there was someone coming to see the house to buy, she would be very upset and become very quiet and sad. She would not speak to anyone, but everyone could make out that she was stressed. She would not be able to eat or drink. And whatever little she could eat, she will start having bleeding and pain during and after stools.

Surprising, isn’t it?

how to cure piles

Could our body and mind be connected?

One hundred percent.

Growing research has proven that mind-body connection is no more just a theory, but in fact time tested hard clinical evidence. So much so, we even have studies proving how the mind influences certain organs.

In fact, every organ has an emotional component and we can retrace the root of our bodily problems to related stressful events and emotions.

For example, let’s take piles. This problem belongs to the anal region.

In Normalcy & In Disease

Physiologically, meaning when we are healthy, the function of the anus/rectum is to excrete or throw out used up stuff. When diseased, the same function of passing stools gets affected.

So, in a way, the body gets into a situation that either it is not able to pass stools. Sometimes, people suffering from problems related to the anus, are afraid to pass stools, as if don’t want to let it go.

Coincidentally, there is a connection between this process. People affected with problems of the anus or the rectum, also are afraid to let go. It is mostly noted to be about some past bad incidents.

Think about Maya of this story. She too had a similar situation. She was so afraid of what might happen if the house was sold, that she didn’t even want to talk about it to her family members. And not just simple keeping it within her. It was pricking her within too. And the body showed what her mind was going through.

The only way to relieve it completely, is to remove the root cause, i.e. the stress.

Fixing the missing link.

After listening to the entire story, the doctor made a complete analysis of Maya, including her physical and psychological symptoms and prescribed her personalized homeopathic medicine.

When she came in 3 days, Maya seemed relieved. For a moment, the doctor thought, if Maya’s house had been saved, as she seemed at peace.

Surprisingly, the problem was still going on. But Maya’s attitude to the problem had changed. Her piles complaints also had relieved. There was no more pain or bleeding. And she was no more stressed about the sale of house. She had come to agree that her family will be respected, wherever they are. And the more the family sticks together during this problem, the more stronger they will become.

How to cure piles

All’s well that ends well.

So that, my friends, is all for today. A small narrative of people like you and me, dealing with so many things at the same time, and getting out of it, successfully. And Of course a whole lot of philosophy.

Congrats and applause to Dr. Smita for taking the time and effort to go beyond just short-term relief. Isn’t it what a good doctor must do?

I will post an article on piles and the psychological connection to the problem soon.

Until then bye.

Eczema. #TrueStory: If you can’t treat me, kill me!

what is eczema

This is Eczema, aka Atopic dermatitis

what is eczema

And this is severe eczema.

what is eczema

What is Eczema?

Eczema is a skin problem, often called as rash, in everyday language. Medically it is also know as dermatitis or atopic dermatitis.

It is by far, most commonly, seen in small children, newborns, and infants. But adults are also affected by it. Its just not paid much attention in adults, unless it becomes very severe.

How to know if you are having eczema?

Eczema symptoms are basically itching, followed by a rash in a particular region, dry and thickened skin in the affected area.

Most commonly these patches will be found around the face (cheeks), hands and legs, the inner part of the elbows and knees.

If you scratch these affected areas, it may burn and sometimes get infected leading to further worsening of the affected skin part.

How is it treated?

eczema

Almost everyone, tends to first try moisturize the skin, which is not wrong. So, oils, moisturizers, calamine lotions etc, are often the first line of self-treatment.

Next when you see it is becoming a repeated problem, and visit a doctor, and will be treated with over-the-counter allergy medicines like Allegra/Xyzal etc (anti-histaminic medicines, these medicines control the sensation of itching)and probably some steroid ointments that will help control the allergy problem.

However, many a time, eczema tends to go down for some time and then come back again. And everytime it comes back, it is more severe, making the lives of the sufferers miserable. Like in this person.

It all started like nothing

45 yr old Mansukh* (name changed) was affected by Eczema for 5-6 yrs.

It all started as a minor rash which he hardly paid any attention to. If it bothered him too much, he would just go to the chemist and buy some ointments which would ‘clear’ everything up in just 1-2 days.

He had no idea of the medicinal ingredients of the ointment, nor was he interested in it. He was satisfied that it worked for him.

Occasionally, it would flare up more than usual, and this was when he would pay a visit to the general practitioner round the corner of his locality. The doctor would also prescribe him a similar ointment along with giving him a shot and some additional medicines.

Not a simple rash

Everything seemed to be going smooth until around a couple years ago, when Mansukh noticed that he was having frequent recurrence of his ‘rash‘.

He had no idea that it was eczema. He believed it was some infection he could be having due to excessive sweating and environmental reasons.

Not only was the eczema appearing repeatedly, it was also worsening. What used to be a dry eczema, had now turned into wet eczema.

It was time for some serious treatment

Mansukh realized he was having a serious condition and decided to consult a skin specialist. The dermatologist explained his condition and prescribed him stronger and more potent medications and ointments to manage the situation.

But he warned him that the condition cannot be cured, and can only be controlled. So, Mansukh was left with no other option, than to use the medicines when it occurred, and take utmost precaution to prevent a recurrence.

eczemaHe spent all he had

Sadly, even after taking the precautions and being on the specialized treatment, his eczema returned with increased increased vigor every time.

He tried changing doctors, changing medicines. he even tried home remedies, and other modes of therapy anyone advised, but nothing seemed to work.

Things just kept worsening

The eczema had by then turned very severe. His legs were swollen from the inflammation. The skin of his legs looked raw and red. There was a glazed appearance of the skin due to the fluid oozing out of the skin.

If there is no medicine to get me out of this, just kill me!

It itched him like crazy, but he couldn’t dare touch it, let alone scratch it. If he did try to rub it, it would burn for hours, that he would literally cry out of the pain.

It pained more in his heart, than his skin

If that was not enough pain, he was further broken by the fact that his friends and relatives had started avoiding him. They stopped visiting his house, coming near him, let apart touching him. All this, for the fear of getting infected by his disease.

Little did they know, that eczema was not a contagious disease. In fact, if the society had been a little more affectionate and caring, then the sufferings of people like Mansukh, would be half of they actually suffer.

It was not only Mansukh that was affected by this problem. His family could sense his sufferings as their own. They tried their best to help him. They would ask everybody they knew for any good doctors, when actually they had met all the best doctors they could afford.

Anything for our loved ones

eczema

One day, someone told a family member that Homeopathy is very effective in skin problems and that they should try it. Having tried the best allopathic treatment and other alternative treatments, the family thought they could not leave any stone un-turned to help their father come out his misery.

On the day they visited Dr. Piyush Singh Agnivanshi, he was busy attending patients in his small compact clinic, and there was a long queue of patients waiting their turn to meet the doctor. It seemed like that they would have to wait for a long time. But they couldn’t afford that.

He couldn’t even move. If he did his skin would crack and bleed

Mansukh had been brought to the clinic seated on a chair as he couldn’t walk. If he moved even a little, his skin would break and blood mixed with a sticky fluid would ooze out of the skin. The family was requesting the patients in line to allow Mansukh to see the doctor first. And it broke out into a commotion.

Dr. Piyush came out to see what was all the noise about and realized the situation. Just as he was going to tell the family member to wait in queue, he heard Mansukh moaning in pain and the state of his legs. He agreed to see to let Mansukh come in next while trying to convince the other waiting patients.

But Mansukh was in no state to move any further. And the doctor was convinced that he might as well attend to the patient in the waiting room itself.

What can a Homeopath do, when the best skin specialists couldn’t help

Just when Dr. Piyush was about to attend to him, Mansukh realized this was a homeopathic clinic, and was agitated. He shouted at his family for bringing him to a homeopath, when even the top skin specialists had given up on any further recovery.

The family members could sense the doctors irritation with Mansukh’s behavior, but he let it pass and focused on comforting the patient.

Though, history taking and examination in a homeopathic consultation is quite elaborate, Dr. Piyush could not afford to do that in this case and managed to take the most characteristic symptoms of the patient and made a quick prescription. He gave a medicine to be taken then and there and a few other medicines to be taken at home for the next 5 days and advised to follow-up.

what is eczema

Surprise, Surprise

On the fourth day, Dr. Piyush was called by Mansukh’s younger brother. He was excited and mentioned that they couldn’t believe that the condition could be relieved without any application of ointments.

Mansukh was also oddly satisfied. Allopathy, Homeopathy, who cares. As long as it helps me, i don’t care what I am taking.

From then, he followed-up every 7-10 days for a month and the improvement was satisfactory. It was not gone. But it was good enough.

By the 3rd month, the skin had healed enough to allow new growth of hair on the affected region. Usually, when the deeper layer of the skin is affected, hair growth on that area also is affected as hair follicles are located in the deeper layer of the skin. All it took was a few sweet pills two times a day.

New skin. New energy. New life.

For 1 yr, Mansukh followed the medicines religiously, during which he was slowly taken off the medicines step by step and completely stopped by the end of 14 months.

Around March/April of 2018, Dr. Piyush had been asked for an interview in a local channel, for which Mansukh was invited. And this was how his legs looked at that time.

Today, he is healthy, happy and fit enough to earn for his family. Not just that, the same people who stayed away from him due to his skin disease, now ask him for reference for their own health problems.

eczema

Moral of the story

There are thousands of people, who suffer from skin problems. Their biggest worry is what will others think about me. And this adds to their stress and causes their body’s immune system to become weaker.

If there is one thing we can do to help the affected, it can be only showing some love and affection. Be informed of the problem. Understand it yourself and make others understand too.

Start by being the change

Don’t be afraid to mingle with them, talk to them and when you are sure it is not a contagious skin disease like Eczema, even touch them gently. Show them you care about them more than their skin. When in doubt, just ask.

If you ask me how homeopathy works, I will tell you honestly, I don’t know how. There’s is still a lack of concrete evidence. But that’s not my job. My job is to treat my patients and relieve them of their suffering in the best way I know. That is my Dharma. As far as how it works, that is the job of the scientists, and I will leave it to them to tell us how it works. Because one thing is for sure. IT WORKS!

Never losing hope: Why age is just a number in couples dealing with infertility above 40. Here’s proof.

Infertility after 40

I want you to take a moment and think about how many people you know, are/were dealing with infertility.

What was it? Let me guess. At least 1. If each of us knows at least 1 person who was dealing with infertility, then there are at least 2 more whom we don’t know about. So if you really give it a thought, the number could actually be more than you expected.

Infertility is a condition where a couple has not been able to conceive naturally. It has become a very common phenomenon today. When I was with a Homeopathic multidisciplinary chain of clinics, we would have at least 10-15 new infertility patients added to our clinics every month. And we were a clinic that saw all kinds of patients. There would be at least 1 elderly couple visiting the clinic every month seeking any fertility treatment. Imagine the number in a mainstream fertility clinic.

Not an easy task

Personally, consulting an eager 40+ couple for fertility treatment, is a very difficult situation. On one side, you are aware that medically the chances may be very low, despite the advancement in medicine and on the other hand, you know that the body works in mysterious ways and that a successful pregnancy, even beyond the accepted age limit, was not impossible.

So what do you do? Do you out-rightly dismiss treatment options for couples above 40, especially women above 40, or do you take the risk of giving them hope, when you cant be sure. There’s no straight answer.

Infertility after 40

22 yrs of Pain and Suffering

This is the story of a couple who had been married for 22 yrs but did not have a child. In the initial days, they had no idea they could be having troubles getting pregnant, and thought it could be just a matter of time. But as days turned into months, and months to years, the wife started getting worried, wondering why is she not getting pregnant. This was 20 yrs ago, not like today, when we meet doctors even before we get married.

The couple had to come down to India from the Gulf, where the husband was working, for their treatment. On examination, it was found that the wife was not having good ovulation, and that was the reason for their infertility.

The agony of couples trying to conceive cannot be imagined unless we have been there. The maximum we can understand is probably only half of what they actually go through. The pain of not having a child of their own. The unspoken guilt (often unjustified) of being the reason for the childlessness, or being at receiving end of the society’s expectations, of the taunts and the looks. And no this is no imagination. It is as true as day. The situation of this woman was also something similar.

Despite knowing that the problem was not only with her, she could never tell loudly about it. To the world, it was her that was the problem. The constant blaming, the taunts and the looks, one cant even begin to imagine. She had stopped going to any family functions to protect herself from the attacks she knew she would have to face. All she had was her husband and her prayers.

She got pregnant twice but aborted

It was not that couldn’t get pregnant at all. She had actually got pregnant twice. Sadly, both the times, she got aborted. First, due to no continued growth in the baby and second time due to no heart beat appearance. Nothing changed even after consulting the most famous doctors.

Recurrent abortions like these happen due to the poor quality of the eggs or the sperms. If either of the two is poor in quality, it results in the formation of a poor quality ovum (in simple words, the baby), in which situation, it will not be able to achieve continuous growth. That is why most of the time, couples are advised to undergo IVF (in-vitro fertilitsation).

In this method, few good eggs and sperms are specifically picked up from the wife and the husband and used for creating a baby. Since it is done outside the body, in a lab, it is called the test-tube baby process.

Even this couple were suggested to go for test-tube pregnancy even though there was only 30-35% chance only. She was now losing, not just time, but also her hope.

Infertility after 40

One last ray of hope

Just when everything seemed lost, they heard about homeopathy and a homeopathic doctor from a family friend and wanted to give it one last shot. The family friend had got a child after 10 yrs of marriage, thanks to Homeopathy.

When you hear that there is a small ray of hope that can make all this darkness disappear, couples hold on to it so strong. And it is a very cruel thing to tell them it may not work.

When you want it to work, but know your reality

But that’s not what happened with this couple. The husband had no faith in homeopathy. What can these small sugar pills do, where the most advanced treatments have failed.

He realized that though it may have worked and have helped others, it may not necessarily work for him. He knew the facts of his case very well. He was 45+ and his wife was 40+.

If his wife’s eggs were not good in her younger days then now at an advanced age, it will be even poorer. It was the same with him. He had low sperm counts too, along with low motility.

The chances of getting positive results with these conditions cannot be very good, he thought. But only because it will not cause any side effects, even if it doesn’t produce any good, he agreed to consult the doctor. And he spoke openly of this to the doctor at the very first consultation.

Infertility after 40

Someone who understands how we feel

Dr. Dileep, understood what the husband expressed and was more than compassionate. He was confident himself and passed on the same confidence. Not everyone can do that.

Many would want to protect themselves from giving too much assurance, and risk being unable to give results. But not him. He genuinely believed that every couple that walked into his clinic would have the chance.

So he told them to take only 6 months of treatment, and if it showed any improvement, they can continue. If not, then he dint want to waste their time and money and neither their hope.

She was already pregnant

Coincidentally, when Dr. Dileep asked them to get their preliminary tests done, the USG showed that the wife was indeed pregnant. So they dint start treatment.

But even this time, there was no heart beat and she had to abort again.

This time, she started the treatment with a new hope, but still worried if it will happen, considering her age.

The final attempt

After 6 months, she had a check-up and tested positive. But had to wait for 1 month to be confirmed that this pregnancy will sustain.

After 1 month, the hospital called back saying it was still positive. And tests showed that the pregnancy was continuing after 3 months also. There was no problem with growth or heart beat. This was the first time she had come beyond 3 months of pregnancy. Finally, she reached 9 months. The only problem was that she had to undergo a C-section because of hypertension (high blood pressure). But who cares, right?! Apart from that she delivered a beautiful little baby, who was later named Gifty Mariya.

Infertility after 40The couple with their daughter

What the doctor has to say

Dr. Dileep says, “It is a fact that most patients coming to homeopathic treatment for infertility have already tried most of the existing popular treatment options by that time. and in that they have lost a lot of years. So when they come to our clinic, they are almost 35 yrs and the quality of their eggs/sperms is low and their interest in only in getting a child rather than having a loving married life”.

“Most patients believe that IVF and ICSI is the last option for trying a pregnancy. And it is a very painful process. Not to mention an expensive one too. Very few people are actually aware of the numerous options outside of the conventional system that can be solution, if relieved in time”.

That’s it folks!

Its not the only one odd case that Dr. Dileep got lucky in. In fact, he has approximately 1800+ success cases in his pocket. You will see him modestly sharing his excitement on his Facebook page and YouTube channel often. Unfortunately, not many are aware of this.

Infertility after 40

This was truly one of the most amazing success stories I have come across about homeopathy. Because as an individual doctor of a particular system of medicine, there could be only so many cases that I have treated and I have had success in. Whereas, it could be completely possible for some other doctor, of a different system of medicine. That doesn’t make the problem incurable or treatment ineffective.

That’s my 2 cents for today! I can surely say, that I will never be able to tell any eager couple trying to conceive, that there’s no chance. What about you?

Leave your feedback in the comments, and share it with someone who think needs this the most.

Let me know your experience with infertility. It could be you, a close friend or a relative, or someone you know. How was it having to deal with it?

At last, if there is any topic you would like to see posts on, feel free to let me know in the comments below. And that’s all for now. I’ll see you soon with another inspiring story!

Until then, take care!


Interview on Youtube

From 12 day long periods to 5 day cycle in 2 months. And no hormone pills. Is that possible?

long lasting periods

Hate having periods?

Me too. Even if it is manageable and only 3 days.

In the good ol’ days, women would normally have periods for at least 5-7 days. Today, that’s the longest most of us have.

Bleeding for 10+ days!!

Now imagine, if we, women who couldn’t handle a 3 day period, had to face this agony, for not 5, not 7, but more than 10 days!!

Don’t even want to imagine that, right?

Sadly, it’s a reality for many women today. Young and old. Dealing with a variety of problems that cause irregular periods.

#TrueStory

I have a real life story of someone who went through this pain, for 6 long years and, overcame it. Yes. She beat it!

So lets find out how.

period problems
Just 22 yrs old

This is an account of a 22 yr old girl with complaints of heavy and long lasting periods since 6 years.

The girl had been using allopathy medicines for all this time with temporary relief.

Time for The Second Opinion

Having realized that she is not improving much, she started looking out for other options. And that was when she found about homeopathy from her neighbor who had been successfully treated for her complaints.

It was then she visited Dr. Bhuvaneshwari, who practices, in Chengalpet, a place not too far from Chennai, Tamilnadu, for homeopathic treatment.

The girl informed the doctor about her complaints and was convinced that it was worth a try.

The History

Upon history taking, it was revealed that after attaining puberty at the age of 13 yrs, this girl had a perfect menstrual cycle for 5 yrs until the age of 17.

However, for some reason, some the last 6 yrs, she had started getting very heavy bleeding, mixed with bright red clots, and at times even lasting up to 12 days.

Now, homeopathy is system of medicine that works in the principle of personalisation. Meaning, every person is different and unique in their own manner.

So, whatever the complaint, homeopathic doctors try to find out peculiar and different symptoms in every patient, apart from the general symptoms of the problem.

For e.g., in this girl’s case, it was evident that she was having a hormonal problem that was causing the heavy and long lasting periods. But, as a Homeopath, one will have to find out how it differs from another person with the same problem.

And in this case, the doctor found that while it would be typical for any woman to be tired and weak from so much blood loss, this girl never felt tiredness!

The only thing was that she would be irritable that her periods would go on for days.

Her past medical history showed that she had hypothyroidism 5 yrs ago and had taken allopathy for it and now was normal.

stress and periods

Mind Matters

Psychologically, she was very stressed about her mother’s health at the time when this problem started 6 years ago. She would not sleep well, would have many bad dreams,

But as her mother recovered, this stressed lowered but her physical problem of periods dint.

As they say, it’s not the stress as much as the person that is stressed, that matters.

Meaning, we tend to take stress even if there is nothing to be stressed about. That’s what called nature.

So, unless we change our nature, everything pretty much remains the same.

So, even in this girl, her initial worry about her mother’s health had gone, but now she started worrying about other things. And slowly, it became her own health.

And all this was taken into consideration and she was finally chosen a very specific medicine and started on treatment.

period problem

The Results

The first month, she had not completely recovered but her heavy flow had improved and she still continued to bleed for more than 10 days. But, surprisingly, she was much better psychologically. She slept well, had no scary or bad dreams, felt more active and lively, and even didn’t worry much about health. As they say, when the mind is ready, the body is ready too. She was now confident that she will come out of this.

The next month, her period stopped in 5 days. And that too without taking any hormone pills. Because homeopathic medicines are not hormone pills. They are medicines that act generally and make the body take control again, instead of the medicine taking control.

She was very confident, if not thrilled, that she was going to overcome this after all. She is still under continued medication and observation, probably for another 3-6 months and then she would have her whole new life ahead of her.

That was amazing right?

That’s exactly what I felt too. Gives us so much happiness to see people improving and finally achieving what they always wanted.

There’s is after all a different solution to every problem.

Hope you liked and were touched by this woman’s journey too!

A Doctor’s Open Letter To Every Woman Suffering From Weight Gain Due To PCOD

Weight gain in PCOD

Weight gain in PCOD is not irreversible.

Yes. And I want you to know that.

In a recent interaction I had with some of the members of a PCOD group, most mentioned that weight gain was their top most concern about pcod.

Honestly, not what I expected.

As a doctor, I saw things differently. Like my main concern would be how quick can this patient to start getting menses on her own, you know like without meds. Or when will this patient of mine start ovulation naturally and be able to get pregnant.

And I wud pay little attention to complaints of skin, hair and weight. As I always felt, I have bigger issues to deal with.

So, who’s wrong here?

Honestly, none of us.

Though we see the problem from our different angles, none of our priorities are wrong.

If I as a doctor failed to address the issues that bother you as a patient, however minor complaints they might, I would fail to make you healthy.

Why?

Because these small things when combined have a larger impact than it looks like.

So thank you for helping me confirm that.

But I must tell you, that your worries about weight gain are misplaced.

Because pcod is not a cause but a result in it self, just like weight gain.

Meaning, both have the same reason. Hormonal imbalance.

I’m not sure if you know this.

Hormones are the basic reason for everything from the start of the problem to the end of the problem. Be it irregular periods or no ovulation or even for that matter weight gain or hair fall.

Let’s take weight for now. Since that’s the #1 problem for most of us with pcod.

Normally, when you are healthy, you have a certain weight range, right? Like since young age.

Now some of us were on the higher side of the weighing scale since young age. That doesn’t mean we are unhealthy since childhood.

It just means that naturally or sometime genetically, we are like that.

The problem is when we start going beyond our usual range. And we note, that not only is our weight increasing, but we have also started having all sorts of other problems. Tiredness, lack of interest, mood disturbances, and slowly it adds to irregular periods also.

You agree with me so far?

So you see, irregular periods or pcod comes far later than the weight gain most of the times.

The actual problem is that body’s natural ability to regulate hunger, your tastes and distates, your metabolism is disturbed and that is why all this is happening.

Why I’m telling all this is, pcod or not, weight gain can be reversed. Not bcos of meds, not bcos of drinks and whatever. But bcos it’s in your control, in your body’s control. And i want you know that.

All other things, can help, but not do the job on their own.

Trust yourself.

Know that you can be whatever you want to be. But you will have to put the hard work. Not only terms of diet and exercise, but in terms of the right mindset too.

You can’t be drowned in negative thoughts and stress, and think you are still going to eat well and exercise right. Everything is related. If you are stressed, automatically you will eat unhealthy food. Automatically you will be uninterested in walking and exercise. And even if you do, you body will be walking, but your mind will doing the opposite.

So, start now! And don’t lose hope.

P.S. Sorry for the long post. I just got carried away. Let me know if you have any concerns about what I said or if you don’t understand anything.
